Berret's Seafood is in Colonial Williamsburg. We sat outside on the covered patio which has overhead fans for those humid evenings. We had good food and service. The New England clam chowder was creamy and full of clams, very delicious. This was a surprisingly good restaurant in a touristy area.

After walking around Williamsburg all day we were looking for a good restaurant that served seafood - saw their sign and walked in. It was still early enough that we didn't need reservations. Both of us had the $29.95 Original Blue Plate composed of she-crab soup, sauteed lump crabcake, baked crab imperial, crispy oysters and shrimp. I couldn't fault anything... More

We ate in the outdoor area which was great since it was a nice evening. Our server was super. The food was tasty but would have liked a little more of a selection on the menu. My salad with salmon was delicious and my husband loved his oysters. There was a great three piece combo playing while we ate which... More

We are local and have eaten here 3 or 4 times a year for 15 years. It remains good quality food on the high side of average price (but it is in a town driven by the tourist $$). This time we sat outside in the "tavern". I had the crabcake sandwich and she crap soup, my wife had the... More

The place is lovely with it's Market Place location and so we opted to sit outside in between downpours of rain. We luckily enjoyed our entire dinner before the rain returned-so we finished our wine at another patio table under a long awning-great evening! The two waitstaff out on the patio with us-were both very pleasant and capable servers!

If you stay in Colonial Williamsburg for a few days, you may want to get back to the 21st century and this is a wonderful seafood restaurant with plenty of choice with freshly caught fish and seafood. The staff are very knowledgeable and the atmosphere is relaxed.

Restaurant is in a heavily touristy area, with lots of other restaurants and shopping housed in "ye olde" quaint styles. Very easy to make online reservations with Open Table with no credit card required. Dinner runs in the $25 to $35 per entree range. Well informed waitstaff (Eugene). My only complaint-there is always something fried in a combination platter, even... More
